While Ignatieff tries to get his face on television with his latest hail mary, Jack Layton will be doing the same. Both will be focusing primarily on Tory ridings, which is no big surprise considering that Tories hold a large plurality of the seats in the Commons. Left minded pundits in the media are emphasizing the targetting of Conservative ridings and Iggy visiting some NDP ridings. Jack will be visiting almost exclusively Conservative ridings. Layton is ignoring ridings held by Gilles Duceppe, where Iggy is going to visit Montreal and Quebec City.
Word on the street today is that the NDP are ready for an election, and that the Liberals are allegedly absolutely determined to go to the polls in March. If this an election were to produce another Tory minority, I expect Iggy steps down, Bob Rae steps in, a coalition will be formed and the opposition will vote down the throne speech.
